Chapter 1. Basic Tasks: Create a Document > Add graphics to the Stage

Add graphics to the Stage

To add library items to your document, you verify that you’re adding the object to the correct layer, and then drag the item from the Library panel to the Stage.

1.
In the Timeline, click the Content layer name to select that layer. With the Selection tool selected, drag the Title movie clip, which contains a bitmap image and vector graphic, from the Library panel to the Stage and align it on top of the gray bar at the top of the Stage that contains the word Title.

In Flash, you can work with bitmap images, which describe graphics using pixels, and vector art, which uses mathematical representation to describe art. For more information, see “About vector and bitmap graphics” in Flash Help.

2.
With the Content layer still selected, drag the text symbol from the Library panel to Stage, and align it with the Trio ZX2004 text that’s already in place as a guide. You can use your keyboard arrow keys to nudge the text into place.

The title text is actually a graphic created from text.
